Every Oakfield home will be designed and constructed to a high quality, so they’re built to last. We’re focusing on architectural design with notable green credentials and an ambition for EPC A rating across the development.
We’re also meeting Swindon Borough Council’s ‘Affordable homes’ target. Thirty percent, that’s 71 of the homes will be available as Affordable Rent or through Shared Ownership.
More than houses, we’re creating a community. Where young people can put down roots and where homes are designed to be easily adapted for older people to remain in their community throughout later life.
The design hopes to inspire a sense of neighbourliness through shared gardens, a park, play area and community hub. And so the new neighbourhood can integrate and link with neighbouring communities and their amenities, we’re improving cycle paths and walking routes.
The way we’ve created this project has focused on bringing people together from the start, working hand in hand with those who live, work, study and play close by. We employed a Community Organiser, Keith Brown to work with local people and encourage them to create a new community with us. They’ve been involved every step of the way.
